Case: One of our Hoschton customers had a back yard that was not getting much use and is difficult to maintain. The homeowners have had a walkway built to a beautiful natural waterfall that lies within the trees. Leading up to that walk was and uneven area covered with a mix of fescue and weeds. There was also a significant slope down to a rough drainage area. Other issues that needed to be addressed were a crooked section of retaining wall, a crumbling patio, and a lack of usable space next to the driveway.
Solution: It was important to make sure the new landscape features integrated well with the work that had been done in the past. Our Hoschton landscaping team chose to use natural stone for the majority of retention and erosion work. The first step was to bring in 10 tandem loads of dirt and 15 tons of boulders to build up the back yard. We used the boulders to build a dry stack wall to expand the yard area. Shade tolerant Zeon Zoysia sod was installed in the newly leveled area. Boulders were also used as a foot wall next to the driveway to allow for a flat turf area. The crooked section of wall was removed and replace with a few large boulders as well. We cleaned out the drainage area, installed erosion fabric and large river stone to handle the water flow. Belgard pavers were used to replace the cracked tiles. The three piece tumbled pavers were a nice transition between the existing manufactured block wall and the newly added boulders. As a final touch some emerald green arborvitaes were selectively places and the beds were finished off with fresh pine straw.
